@halfling@Kaieta he said he was sending it to drunk him. Which means he’s either perpetually drunk or will watch and get drunk on the day it’s said to arrive. Maybe he meant to say from drunk him which is much easier to accomplish and makes a ton more sense.
My wife got her’s. I kept telling her I had was sending her noods…she wasn’t thrilled. Then the 5 boxes arrived. She still wasn’t thrilled. Each box contains 2 smaller boxes…100 lbs in total. She thought it was funny, but I made the mistake of keeping what I was sending her a secret and I think she let her imagination think it was something nice…
@Deuce0222 oh man, I hope my sister gets 100lbs of pasta. It would be HILARIOUS! Especially since she just told me last night she is trying to cut back on grains/carbs. I’m going to look evil! Hahahahahaah
It won’t let me Pasta Drop at all. It keeps coming up with the “Something went wrong on our end” message. Meh.com is taking a long time to load pages as well. Did Pasta Drop break the internet? Meh was so determined to try this experiment that no one bothered to ask if they should. The ramifications of their hubris could be devastating.
@alandanziger I was able to get through right after posting this. Coincidence? Well…probably. It still took three times to get the order to go through once I actually got to the order page (which was the first time I saw how much the thing actually cost, which was weird). It was like trying to buy an IRK. Speaking of which, mine still hasn’t even shipped from the last Meh-rathon. Let’s see which one shows up first, the pasta or the IRK.
I’m sad that the spag I sent to myself only amounted to 10 pounds. We’re eating a lot of pasta lately. Torn bag, trashed box. 88 cents a pound for name brand on sale at the supermarket. I sent the second drop to a friend. It won’t be funny or fun if she gets only 10 pounds, so fingers crossed. I’ve been a meh fan since the beginning, and a vmp member forever, and I’m bummed.
100 lbs of spaghettini. Ten bags with ten pounds each. I was planning on giving it to the local food bank. I hope they’re ok with ten-pound bags. Luckily, my Sunday mail carrier thought it was funny. My regular carrier couldn’t fit it in the truck so didn’t deliver it.
@medz@OnionSoup@SSteve@riotdemon@barney So I just got a FRANTIC call from my mom asking if I know anything about a pasta delivery. She does not know what is going on and who delivered SO MUCH pasta!!! WHAT IS SHE GOING TO DO WITH ALL THIS PASTA!!! THIS IS CRAZY!!!
Amid laughter I was able to ask what delivered, four boxes at 20# each for a total of 80#'s.
Just wait until that fifth box shows up. I am NOT telling her it is en route!!
@snapster thank you for allowing me to laugh harder than I have for quite a while!!
Mine for my wife is still in Texas, seems to be held up there for a week. Once it finally leaves, if like other meh products it’s 7-10 days away. I still have a while until I witness the horror. (But mine is only one shipping label so presumably only 20lbs… Maybe I’ll hit jackpot with the Penne… Which would be better since she likes that more)
As an aside… Did you know a single stand of spaghetti is a spaghetto? Presumably a single strand of spaghettini is a spaghettino.
@Kidsandliz@RiotDemon@tinamarie1974 ugh… I don’t mind getting less than other people and some people getting large amounts, but I’d feel very let down if I only got 10lbs. That’s expensive pasta.
Hoping for 20lbs. At that price it’s not the cheapest but still a reasonable price and don’t mind paying the little extra compared to what I’d do at grocery store because profits are partially going to a good cause.
@Kidsandliz@OnionSoup@RiotDemon I answered the phone today and after saying HELLO I hear, “you are really fruit. Do you think you are funny? You sent me ANOTHER pasta drop???” After laughing hysterically I explained it was the last box in her shipment … 100# in total. Lets just say she does not think it is as funny as I do
Looks like mine will only be 10lbs according to tracking. It’s fine for what I got it for, but I won’t be dropping $20 on a future drop when there’s a chance of only 10lbs while others are getting 100lbs. If there was a guarantee of at least 20lbs I would probably do this again.
Mine arrived, 20lbs, lovingly swaddled with Texas air and double-boxed. No damage, all good.
I had some for dinner. It was okay. I cooked it for 8 minutes like I usually cook De Cecco “thin spaghetti” but it ended up overdone. I have 39 more opportunities to practice! Until the linguine arrives.
@chienfou@smozi I think that’s the point? A few people have made the observation that pasta is already relatively inexpensive (<$1/lb.) at grocery stores. Who knows how long PastaDrop lasts? 6 months, until restaurants open back up and supply chains re-equalize? Maybe it morphs into an Italian restaurant supply center? Who knows… but it’s not your standard known-quantity deal, it’s more akin to the “grab bag” style loot boxes out there with a single product. Regardless, I’m in for 1.
We have the following points based on the location of the corners in the image.
We also have a few assumptions.
a) This is the box the pasta arrives in
b) The box is square rather than some weird shape because someone was drunk when they ordered the box.
c) the length of the spaghetti is ~10in or 250mm and this correlates to the length of the box.
Next we can assume that we have two orthogonal surfaces whose projection can be represented by the matrices
Uhhh… Look, it took linear algebra a while ago so maybye it is called a multidimensional array? but yea.
If people are randomly getting from 10-100 lbs of noodles for $20, I think this experiment is going to die quickly. A big amount is both funny and possibly worth it. $2 a lb pasta in large damaged packages isn’t really funny or worth it.
@kevinrs yeah, I’ve placed two orders. Spaghettini and Penne. First orders sent to my wife to see what it was like before sending it elsewhere.
Neither has left Texas yet. I’ll be pretty annoyed if after all this wait all I have is 10lbs of pasta. It looks like the people who got theirs first got the large amounts of pasta, so I’m assuming since I’m last I am going to be one of those with very little pasta. Probably the dust left over from the bags of pasta that broke.
Depending on how frequent the 10lb bags are, I might not do a third drop, I was going to drop pasta to family if it was a good deal…(I wish they showed the frequency of each weight so we had some idea). I don’t want to be spending $2/lb on pasta though… That’s not much cheaper than the sale price for chicken at Lidl.
If guarenteed (or at least likey) to get 20lbs or more, I’m ok with it. Yeah, can get pasta cheaper, but it’s less fun.
The anticipation is killing me. Mine hasn’t shipped yet and now my brother’s girlfriend is going back to school. This means that it might get stolen from their front door. Florida wasn’t supposed to open until they got their pasta.
@ivannabc Disappointed? I think I probably would be, at least a little bit. I’ve ordered 5 drops so far but none have arrived (the first two have made it from Texas to Georgia and still have to come to North Carolina, but they’ve been in Georgia for a couple of days now, so I don’t know when they will arrive.)
@gymbrall yeah maybe a little. $2 a lb is a tad steep. The one I ordered for my son has been hanging out in his city for 8 days now. I have bought some of each of the first three for my son and my parents. So we’ll see what they get. If th ey get 10 lb bags too, I’ll pass on any more orders
Anyone else get a single 5lb package of noodles in an open bag? That’s what I’m told was received by the person I ordered this for. Disappointed and thinking it shouldn’t be eaten since the bag was already opened.
So the reason it’s taking so long, and why some of us still don’t have our orders from Mehcatalyst sites placed back in early April is twofold. They fired everyone that worked in the warehouse so it’s taking longer to fill the boxes to ship in the first place. And secondly shipping times have slowed way down too.
Well just like all my most recent irk purchases, it seems I got the bottom of the barrel package again. I got 10 lbs, but at least my bag appears to be sealed. This will be the first and last drop for me. I agree with other posts that said the minimum should have been 20 lbs. Would have been happy with that, and laughed with others getting 100. Getting 10 just feels like I subsidized nicer packages for others. I’ll just take my coupons and walk away from pastadrop.
I can’t read all of the earlier 700 posts, but I was tracking mine when a seemingly stealth box arrived Saturday (!!) afternoon from USPS with 20 lbs in it. But I kept getting notices from my USPS tracking that the package was still coming, and Monday, there was another 20 lb box. So 30 lbs for the food kitchens - figured out how to store the open 10lb bag and we made up some tonight - not bad, actually.
@KNmeh7 Thank-you! I had checked spam and it wasn’t there either…I think there is a disconnect regarding the PastaDrop page in general. I’ve been a member of Meh (and affiliates) for ages and never received a single email about my order…unless gmail hates them for some reason. LOL
Oh, oops! I forgot to chime in with my pasta report. I got 20 lbs. That’s about what I would have gotten for $20 at the store, so I guess it’s a fair deal. I admit I was hoping for a little more, because I always cook extra for my chickens, so it goes kind of fast. Yes, for my chickens. They livin’ their best life.
Anyone you send this to that isn’t you will obviously be a “new” ship to address. e.g. my local foodbank.
That also means you MUST uncheck the pre-checked “Billing address is the same as shipping address” checkbox.
Since the billing address is always going to be different than the ship to, you have to enter in your billing address every time you “send noods”.
You can’t switch from your browser to another app on your phone (like your contacts app) to look up your intended co-victim’s shipping address without coming back to a completely empty form to fill out all the information again.
My pre-saved payment cards could not be selected. I still had to enter the card number despite using the radio buttons to pick one. None worked.
And heaven help you if you copy your shipping address from another app (your address book or from the website of the recipient) and can’t paste it into any field because the form truncates it (the most important part - the zip code which has to be enetered separately)
The “It’s not your fault, some random error with our website has occurred, guess again” game is not fun. Just knock that shit off, K? Give me something actionable.
The coupon-that-shall-not-be-named was accepted, but did not work. It did not change the prices, and worse it didn’t tell me why it didn’t work (invalid or already used).
Show some pride. Test Yo Shit.
Don’t abuse the customer.
Get it together and think this through when you’re not high.
@mike808 Well said. Actually totally agree with you on choice E) ALL OF THE ABOVE.
Especially the appendix to 8.
“It’s an experiment” – what’s our status, guinea pigs or just lab rats?
You’d think that after twenty plus years of commerce on the internet, UX would be no problem. (But I still hate search functions on major sites – try looking up “replacement vacuum cleaner cord” on Lowe’s or HD, and see what they try to sell you. Walmart did OK on that, but they are usually one of the worst.)
I think you just coined a new initialism, TUX. (At least I hadn’t encountered it yet.)
@sammydog01 I don’t want to send it to myself. That’s the point. I want PastaDrop to ship to the recipient, not ship it to me and then I have to ship it again, at my own cost, to the victim lucky recipient of my charitable largess.
As for filling in my own info for billing, Mercatalyst already has this on file, and it means I have to do it every damned PastaDrop. Not gonna be a repeat customer after that kind of abuse, that you think is justified. Wow.
Fuck I just need to buy this and I’m running into glitch city. Gonna try this…
Dear future Casey, remember when you said you would stop impulse spending…and now you have a giant box of fucking pasta. Dude, never change.
I sent it to my daughter, yes she lives in my house. But she’s already planning on a pasta drop to a coworker friend. So she will use the code. I may have to send some to my other adult kids that haven’t heard of it, just to confuse them.
4 days until the next one? I need this for my roommate. She drunk cooks pasta often and boils it all over my stove leaving me a disaster to clean up the next morning. she moves Out later this month and I want her to have a good supply of pasta to mess up her own stove with! How quickly will this ship? She’s getting married and this is going to be an awesome add on wedding gift. But only if it gets here before she leaves since she’s moving a few hours away
Mine is at the local post office for delivery tomorrow. I am off today or I would have eyes on it. Also to b delivered tomorrow an unknown box from Carrolton shipped the same day. I have a couple orders in processing but not sure which it is. I think someone forgot to send the shipping notices out.
@speediedelivery Ahh interesting, yeah I see in USPS Informed Delivery that this one was shipped on 05/20 and USPS is waiting for the item “Picked Up by Shipping Partner, USPS Awaiting Item
@aswood yeah I got one too (my husband sent it to me). I sent one of each to my son. I also ordered the fettucini for my mom too so if they only get 10 lbs each of all three, I think I’ll have to bow out of this in the future. $80 for about $25 worth of pasta is not such a great deal.
I was given one tracking number, which I used to set up automatic notifications with USPS. Got notified by USPS, PastaDrop, and my UPS store that the delivery had been made.
Not the end of the story. UPS store let me know that I had received two packages, and they let me know the tracking numbers of both as per usual. Hmm, did I get one of my Kickstarter spiffs without notification? I threw the unknown tracking number into USPS, and guess what? Same tracking info as the known PastaDrop shipment.
Very mysterious. I’ll be swinging by today to see what I got, but given this is USPS, they can’t be too heavy.
@hisgrossness Two boxes, each containing two smaller boxes. Packing slips in both large boxes confirmed it was from the same single order (I had a thought driving over that someone may have gifted a PastaDrop to us, but no). Each smaller box is about 10 pounds, making a total of 40 pounds.
I wanted to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank of Silicon Valley, so drove over there. Turns out they are not accepting walk-in donations. So, I need to find an alternative donee.
I’m actually amused at how this worked out. Interesting concept, glad to participate.
My recipient got hers. It was 20 lbs. She had gotten an email from her son’s school saying his teacher was sending everyone something. She thought this was it and was going to send the teacher a thank you email with a picture of it! I cleared things up.
@Raider perhaps ‘straight in the trash’ is a bit extreme… in order to cook it you’re going to kill any creepy-crawlies that may have found its way on to your skinnysketti. perhaps buying 5 cans of cheap-ass sauce and delivering to a “church under the bridge” type thing in your town. those holes in that bag won’t mean a thing to them.
I received my 10lb bulk bag of spaghettini today. Box was crushed and plastic bag containing pasta cut open in numerous places. What a complete waste of food to ship so carelessly so it’s been exposed to who knows what during shipping and now must be thrown out.
Ok, color me confused but pleased. I posted yesterday I got my drop and received 20 lbs, but today another box came and now I have another 2 packages, for a total of 40lbs. The box says on it “PASTADROP 2” on the top, the first box having nothing on it. I just kinda assumed when I opened it that it was the Penne from the second drop. A surprise for sure, and I’m happy to have it, but I wager the poor postman isn’t.
@Tiamat114 Same thing happened to me! I placed one order and got 20 lbs on Monday and was like “Whoa! This is a lot of pasta!”. And then today, I got ANOTHER 20 lbs! Wtf am I going to do with 40 lbs of pasta?!
I’m curious if other people actually had the pasta drop? The box was super beat up, I should have figured the contents might be damaged. I had sent it to my self. I went to pull the bag out and all 10 pounds of pasta ended up on my bare foot. Hurt like hell and now I can’t eat any of it! So did your pasta get delivered or dropped on your foot because the bag was ripped wide open in shipment?
Well, I shelled out $20 for #10 pounds of pasta/spaghettini. I knew the amount was not set in concrete, but still feel a bit ripped off, TBH. I have a family of 6 disabled adults. I could have gotten this at the store for this price! Sigh.
@Zelucifer thanks right; not expecting certified facility was in play here (while ingredients aren’t necessarily disqualifying.) This is higher end imported Italian pasta used in restaurants but not seeing commentary useful to @mossygreen
Hey there! I did actually find some more out about this (finally, sorry for the wait!) - It looks like SOME of them are but not all. They’re all the same brand, so I’m not 100% why some are and some arn’t, BUT: Apparently both the Spaghettini and Linguini do have the ‘KF’ logo on them!
I’LL BE LOOKING FOR THE “SWEETENERS” E-MAIL --Because I’m going to be Meh’s #1 Nudge if I don’t see it.
BTW, FIVE (5) sites? 'k, what am I missing?
1-Meh; 2-Mediocritee (still mehhy); 3-Morningsave (thumbs up for the extra VMP 10% off if the item isn’t the morning mehhy deal on that site; and now 4-pastadrop. What am I missing? Woot was bought by some other mehhy-type people, yes, no?
FROM the Pastadrop FAQ’s:
"Got anything else to sweeten the pot?
Sure, since we just launched we’ll throw in $50 total store credit for our other sites. After you PastaDrop you’ll get an email with $10 off each of our five other sites. You can use these codes once on each site to…save $10.
Oh, and the PastaDrop recipient will also get a code they can use to PastaDrop someone else. Pasta it forward, if you will. (Or even if you won’t.)
@eric1024@evgrosen are morningsave and sidedeal really the same site though? I mean, I don’t mind a coupon for both, but they both sell the exact same things for the exact same price. It’s essentially one site with two urls.
@eric1024 - Thanks! I forgot about casemates (wine - whoo hoo! Uh oh… )!
Sidedeal - I know nothing. But looks like we’re getting out of C19 lockdown pretty slowly… it’s for our own good, I suppose. sigh.
@eric1024@OnionSoup - it’s a Meh-ist conspiracy - they’re trying to get our “meh” money anyway they can. The name “sidedeal” sounds a little slimey to me - do they offer disinfecting wipes? Because, man, those are still really hard to get – unless you don’t mind getting reamed. (I did find some on Boxed for a reasonable price - limit 2, and man, they went FAST.)
the coupons make it worth the first try, and I my friend can always pass them along to the food bank or somewhere. It’s a good start to the stash for when the virus flares again from all the idiots having beach parties …
@Brasssong mine is still processing and has not shipped. I have yet to actually receive anything that i have ordered from any of the mediocre labs sites. My first purchase was May 1st and then a few other orders prior to the pasta drop. I do not expect to receive the pasta until 2nd week of June. All of my expected delivery windows from orevious purchases have passed and still waiting. I ordered the penne this week to deliver to my sister. I figure i may forget about it in 5 weeks and we’ll both have a laugh
If the shipping process from my MorningSave order is any indication of how this works, it’s been 11 days since that order shipped and I have NO idea where it is now. My first box of pasta shipped 5 days after that one and has been in Texas for the past week.
@OnionSoup Hope you feel better! If it’s available in your area you should get tested regardless if you think it’s serious or not. It helps with your treatment (tamiflu for flu) and the statistics in your area. Most people just need to place a call to their PCP or local 3-1-1 to get a drive-up appointment
@MrMikenIkes thank you, yes, I’m of two minds on getting tested. On one hand, it does help gather statistics (although I know it’s in my area- my zip has the highest prevalence of it in the state, or did at one time at least).
On the otherhand, I’m fairly mild (honestly it’s just the throat that’s obnoxious to me) so don’t really require treatment for whatever I have and going to get tested means potentially exposing someone else. (and also potentially getting exposed to it myself if I actually only have strep or flu; both of which are probably more likely given my symptoms).
@OnionSoup if it helps put your mind at ease, most of the testing that’s being done at least in my area is done at drive through sites where you pull up in your car into a tent and in that tent you roll your window down and they test you right there.
The testers are in PPE anyway and I’ve been tested twice as part of my job (no symptoms just an essential worker) and from what I can tell you these people are very good about infection control.
That’s at least what we have been doing here in MA, I obviously can’t speak for other parts of the country where you may be putting the testers at risk.
Either way I hope you feel better soon so you can start shoveling some NOODS into that throat instead of cough drops haha
@tightwad it’s not invasive at all and takes about 30 seconds - 2 minutes depending on the test they do.
What usually happens is they schedule you to go to a drive up center, you roll your window down and give them your info. At this point they may take your vitals (BP, Pulse, Temp) but in my experience they didn’t do this. Then you’ll drive further up in the tent, and depending on the test center they’ll either swab the back of your throat or a nasal swab and then you drive off and they call you with the results.
The throat swab feels like you are being tickled at the back of your throat. The nasal swab is the one that people complain about and I will say it is uncomfortable. They stick a swab deep in your nostril and rotate it. They may do the second nostril as well. It doesn’t hurt, just feels very strange but the second time I had it done it did make me tear up. After a few seconds I was fine though and I just drove home.
It sounds like if you ship it to yourself, you get 10 pounds of pasta.
Ship to someone else and it could be 100.
I had it shipped to myself because I have no friends. Stingy people (like myself) who send gifts to themselves generally don’t have friends so it’s no surprise.
@binkybear I hope not - and not sure if that’s true. On the first one, I didn’t even think about changing, everything had been pre-filled and so I sent to myself thinking I’ll just strip the label and drop the box somewhere. Then when the web site had additional problems putting other addresses in, I just decided to send to myself and I’ll drop off elsewhere.
@trailtroll don’t fret. it will get to you… but@OnionSoup is probably correct that it will more resemble orzo. these were packaged for food service and were never meant to be tossed around as individual boxes from one truck to another.
according to Pitney Bowes my shipment, although entered into the system on the 20th, wasn’t picked up until the 26th in Carrollton, TX… On the 28th it says that it was passed off to the USPS in Waco, Tx., 113 miles south. USPS tracking says it’s still waiting for it.
I know it doesn’t work this way, but I’ve begged meh since day zero to simply leave texas bound shipments on the front counter for the postal carrier. two day delivery is usually nicer than two week delivery.
@lichme Thanks for the link. All the ones I tried with google didn’t give me anything. This shows that tomorrow my daughter will be getting a 22lb 10oz box. Can’t wait for the penne to ship so I can see what my son will be getting. Daughter knows about it, son does not.
@Thunderbums did you actually spend the $20 or were you one of the people who may or may not have used a possible super-secret coupon that may or may not have existed that made the order a no-cost-to-you item?
I am totally caught by surprise. I knew that Morning Save had an over abundance of pasta, but I never knew that someone would send my 20 pounds of it! Never heard about this nefarious bunch until just a short while ago my poor husband came in, out of breath, toting a Pastadrop box. (We’re old people.)
Now I want to get in on the action. Where can I buy a Pasta Bomb? I know several people who deserve a drop.
10 pounds, box totally mangled, bag ripped open. Fortunately my recipient is pretty understanding. I think shipping these 10lb bags in a box big enough to hold twice that much is just asking for it to bounce around like a football player’s brain inside his skull until all are ruined.
I might be willing to give this one more shot (with a much less dense variety of pasta, and shipping to myself rather than to anyone I respect). But between that and the abysmal shipping I think I’d consider this experiment a failure.
I’m excited my order just went through! Something is wrong with me that I can’t wait to get an unspecified amount of an unknown type of pasta in an unknown amount of time. Can’t be any worse than the last 8 weeks of quarantine purchasing.
Got two errors when I tried to order (using the VMP code that got emailed out), but also received two order confirmations - both for $0. The email specifically stated only one coupon per account, so I canceled one of them. Hope the other goes through, if only to see how much pasta I actually am going to receive.
Definitely some bugs in the ordering system, but I’m sure it will get worked out eventually…
So the gimmick here is to pay $20 to send a random amount of dried pasta, delivered in almost a month, to other people? Or to yourself? Bulk pasta is pretty easy to find and super cheap, even now. Delivered or picked up.
All the other meh spin-offs at least have some point, even if some are redundant. I guess I don’t get the point of this one. Is the fun in not knowing if you’re getting a good deal or not? Or in not knowing if you’re just wasting food others could use because you’ll have way too much pasta? Or were you trying for a far less interesting “bag of dicks” concept? Maybe a it’s like a lottery where the only prize is random amounts of pasta?
It’s not even random types of pasta or unusual/specialty pastas. So basically it’s a BoC (a BoP, if you’d like) of one of the most boring things around where the only unknown is the amount?
I’d be curious what the business discussion that lead to this site was. I can only assume some thought of a cute domain name and things just sort of escalated. Now THAT I get it. I’ve been there.
Can anyone confirm whether the code’s used have all been redeemed? Not getting error but doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Order doesn’t seem to be going through either, not sure if it’s due to the applied code or if it’s just the bottleneck issues that @snapster mentioned
@snapster For what it’s worth, I am now showing an order receipt timestamped 11:38 ET for a total of $0. waterproof-lowly-maple if you would like to do any internal testing (or if you even can). Never actually saw a confirmation screen, started to get the error message saying “these are selling fast. please wait a while” or similar. Closed window, waited and reopened to try again, and repeated cycle when I would get the wait a while message. I’ll stop trying now that I received the potential order confirmation.
@dzieciom@wilstev Similar issue on my side, it said that my order wasn’t going through, but I have a confirmation email with a charge of $0. Also got the added benefit of my bank sending an email about possible fraudulent charges for $0.00. Either way, I think my boss will enjoy some pasta.
@snapster So if the order went through, when it said it didn’t, and shows a charge, even though the coupon was used, it probably didn’t apply, and it’s safe to cancel the order? I don’t want to spam the servers if the thing is applied
@lichme@snapster So, I had trouble getting my orders to go through, I thought. It turns out that four actually went through. AND three of the four, I used the coupon code. Since i wasn’t getting through, I had ordered one without the code.
Anyway, three of my emails said $0 amount paid and one was for $20. I cancelled two freebies and the $20 purchase. I now have one freebie order left on my account and I am happy as a clam.
@lichme@snapster Left for a bit, came back and clicked “Let’s try that again” on the page where I entered the coupon code and tried to buy it a billion times, and this time it went through. However, order confirmation and my credit card show a charge for $20, so assuming the coupon being applied successfully doesn’t necessarily mean it worked. It just didn’t show any error message applying it.
Well after many tries earlier saying code unknown, I gave it another try a bit ago (fully assuming all used hence the error) and much to my surprise it accepted the code and e-mail received confirming code worked. Thanks for the drop, will be fun to see what arrives!
I kept getting a “Try Again Later” message every time I tried to order. I tried about 50 times and gave up. Just now got an email confirming my order. I sure hope I don’t get another 49 confirmations! No one needs that much pasta… Or do they?!
never figured out if McAfee is the stupidest ever or too smart for our good. Used to delete parts of commercially bought games. So switched to Norton, a bit later it did the same thing (or was it vice versa)
Used Avast since someone I know who worked IS for Amacrap EU told me it is the only thing he’d use on his machines at home. Dunno if it is still true, lost connection over the years
@Barney@jennisashark nah… the far end of my expected delivery date is still June 1. this ain’t a covid thing, this is purely on Pitney Bowes being a horrible, terrible, no good company. I feel bad that The Labs went with them. BAAAAAD decision.
@jennisashark June 12th. Shipment has arrived at the USPS facility twice now according to shipping. But still, no estimated delivery date. It’s the 15th. I ordered this a month ago. I’m beginning to lose hope.
My order only has 1 tracking number, which Pitney Bowes says is 22 lbs. Informed Delivery from the USPS tells me there is a second tracking number with another 22 lbs… But one is coming on Thursday and the other is still in PB purgatory.
Everyone enjoying their first drop and mine still stuck in PB Texas lockup. Has been there since 5/26 and hasn’t departed Grapecine yet. Then it will take another 2 weeks to travel to east coast. Booo. My sister may get week 4 before my wife gets week 1
@tjg5181 I got our shipment of spaghetti two weeks ago. We got the penne today. But the order I placed for my son a month ago is still in transit. It’s been “picked up and processing by agent” in his city since 5/29. Weird
Hmmm… I’m not sure if this is just the post office being dumb or if they’re trying to figure out how to deliver 100# of pasta to a rural address. “Delivery Exception” is the “Please Wait…” of delivery messages.
My brother’s spaghettini is finally moving again. It sat at Atlanta since the 27th. On the 3rd it was processed and then in transit. On the 5th it arrived at Atlanta again, lol. Says he should receive it on the 10th.
My linguine says it’s supposed to be delivered on the 10th too.
1st and 3rd drops delivering at the same time, go figure.
We got ours a week ago, two 20lb boxes over two days. Gave one to the neighbor, kept one. Went today to find some place to store our second bag and found it was torn open (and spilled about 1/2 out when I lifted it out of it’s little sub-box). Had neighbor check theirs and one of them was also ripped open. Contacted CS and we’ll see what happens.
Has anyone gotten a CS response yet? Are they replacing or refunding? Replacement would be fine by me …
I’m sad. The spaghettini I shipped has been lost. I’ve been refunded. I was really looking forward to talking with my brother after it shows up. Now I’ll just have to bring him some of my pasta in person whenever I can see him.
